Drinking PeptoHis arms withdrawled, his face burning, his followers staring, the others passing, his thoughts scatterred, non-slip, oil-resistant soles screaming, he sits.
His hope withdrawled, his problems burning, his memories staring, the possibility passing, his destiny scatterred, never-drop, always-will be mind screaming, he tries.
"I'd like to introduce you to our newest contestant, The could-have-been Arsenist. Come on Down!"
He takes a step, reaches for the stale fortune cookie in his pocket, and hurls it at the Announcer in Gold.
"I don't need you."
He is almost out of the way, but he presses. He presses and his name flickers on the screen.
It's dark again. I wonder if it's time to roll out the red carpet.
When he snows, he imagines something:
The fur is superglued together. It smells like a plastic model airplane.
He'd like to notice something, but it's impossible for him to grasp.
He'd like to crumple it all up, because it's no longer important.
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
